This is the original, heavy-duty reflective film developed for F1 and IndyCars!

Our Gold Reflective Film has excellent heat reflective characteristics, yet it is very thin and easy to install. Reflects up to 750° F radiant heat and withstands continuous operating temperature (heat soak) of 500° F. Within the normal operating range, temperatures drop by up to 70° F.

The special metalized polyamide polymer is laminated to a thin layer of glass cloth, with a strong fire-resistant adhesive backing. This film is very lightweight at only 5 ounces per square yard, and is easy to apply (just peel and stick). The film is just 6 mils thick and requires a minimum air gap to the heat source of just 1mm, making it perfect for tight installations. Sold by the running foot from a roll that is 24 inches wide*.

This is not the same as the common light-duty "economy" gold film. The fire-resistant adhesive used on this film passes the FAA 12-second vertical burn test. The "economy" film will not! The fire-resistant adhesive is opaque white. The silver backside shows through the clear adhesive used on the "economy" film.

* Minimum 24" wide. Depending on the production run, this film is sometimes supplied slightly wider at the manufacturer's discretion. Sorry, no width choice! Please plan on receiving 24" wide film and consider any extra width to be a free bonus.

Note: We've been asked if this Reflective Heat Barrier Film contains real gold. Frankly we don't know what metallic elements are contained in this gold colored film. However, we suspect that it could not contain real gold at this low price. What we DO know is that it works extremely well.

For the price that this tuff runs I was expecting it to be stickier. I used it to wrap an air box and intake on my race car and it looks great, but was very hard to get to stick. I had to sand down the plastic and still use lots of spray adhesive to make it not peel up on the corners. I'm hoping that it doesn't do that anyway the first time it gets really hot. It's still better than the alternatives out there, but it could definitely use some improvements for the high price.

GOOD AS GOLD

By paul

from so cal.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fire Resistant Adhesive GOLD Heat Reflective Film, per foot:

first things first, this is for inferred rediant heat its refelective. it is not a insulator per ,se. how I used it is to refelect the turbo heat away from the intake manifold. I have a metal heat shield I removed and applied the foil on the turbo side as as to reflect the heat towards the turbo. and away from manifold. the other side of the metal heat shield is a lower temp. than what it used to be. the stuff works well for what its designed for. now there is ofgassing for a while you can smell it. my only concern is how well the product adhesive holds up only time will tell. rember gold to face the heat source you want to reflect.

Lacks adhesion

By Ants_sez

from Auckland, NZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fire Resistant Adhesive GOLD Heat Reflective Film, per foot:

Product looks great and I'm yet to see if it does lower engine bay heat but my experience with it was not as good as expected due to low adhesive quality when applying to a new flat firewall. It has started to seperate already

Does What It Should...

By BrewDude

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fire Resistant Adhesive GOLD Heat Reflective Film, per foot:

Definitely keeps the turbo heat from off of the hood. Best to have a plan as to where and what you're going to stick it to because once it's on it's on, including to itself if it happens to fold over on itself. I prepped all surfaces with alcohol to ensure a clean surface and to promote adhesion.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivered right on time as expected.

Comments about Fire Resistant Adhesive GOLD Heat Reflective Film, per foot:

This Gold reflective film is awesome, I used it in my Lotus Turbo Esprit and it performs very well, it has excellent heat reflective characteristics. It dropped the temperature in my trunk space by nearly 100 degrees. I had initial concerns about installation, but this was very easy to install even on irregular surfaces.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was very prompt, overall packaging was great, I received the product in good condition.

Perfect Hood Liner!

By White Chocolate

from New Orleans, LA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fire Resistant Adhesive GOLD Heat Reflective Film, per foot:

I used as a hear barrier/hood liner on a Seibon Carbon Fiber hood. I didn't want to deaden engine noise but wanted something for the heat. I had used in the past to wrap second stage turbo inlet, and figured it would work great for the hood. It, did and was easy to install as well, just like putting tape down that's two feet wide...;o) Thanks for the great Product!!
